Creating Fancy Checkmark Icons with Pure CSS3

I was recently working on a personal project where I wanted to implement some cool “checkmark” icons like you see at left to spice up my unordered lists. I could’ve done it quite easily with the list-style-image property, but I was trying to keep my images and http requests to a minimum, so I wanted to figure out another way to do it (plus, the challenge sounded kind of fun).

I had just seen Nicolas Gallagher’s awesome¬†pure css social media icons, though, and I thought, “If he can do that, than I could certainly create a simple check icon with just css3″. I did figure it out with some experimenting and testing, and today I’m going to show you how to achieve the same effect.

Create a Portfolio Client Area Using PHP and MySQL: Part 4

Since Part 3, we’ve gotten through all the membership stuff — basically something you could find on any PHP/MySQL tutorial. Now, though, we will finally get into the part of this tutorial that makes it a “client area.” In this tutorial, we’ll cover the “shared documents” section of the client area.

Sharing documents back and forth between clients can be a real hassle via email, and other online tools to handle this can get expensive. Having your own client area manage documents is a great way to combat both issues.
